I have been quiet for a few days. Lots going on at home and just a bit tired. I feel like my stress is catching up with me and starting to wear me down. I will NOT let that happen, though. I am strong ;)
Today has been good for the most part. I did get an e-mail from my Latvian guy that I had get my stuff through the customs and from Hamburg to Dresden. He says he did not get my 2nd wire transfer -- 615 Euros. Um hello, I sent it on July 23rd and it should have been there by now. He got my first payment and I used it as a basis for the 2nd. If the first got there, the 2nd should have, too. So is he trying to lay one on me? Ugh! I don't want to deal with this.
I need to get an order together for my British distributor -- I have run out of a number of things. Eeps! I know it is a good thing, but really. Yikes, I have only been open for 2 weeks! Good thing business is going well. I will probably not get a full order together and have to pay a small amount extra for not making minimums. It shouldnt make a huge difference in pricing, though.
Today was another odd customer day: most unashamedly was a German guy who, while knowing he was in the presence of 2 Americans, began bashing Americans for their language and went on and on about how much better the British are. Like, really. Oh the Americans talk so horribly, I want to only learn British English and ladabadlaeioadsfoik ..... OKAY! I get it, I suck. Thanks. After I pointed out how diverse the German language is with its dialects and such, he seemed to understand the point that there are many ways of speaking lots of languages... And I showed him that non-Germans can speak just as clean a German as natives. :P Take that Mr. Sauerkraut!
Then I got a hottie in the shop with long hair. Ahhh, made up for the uncomfortable conversation with the other bloke.
And I got to visit with two friends, one of which is one of my very favorite people. Made today a good day :D It is already after 5 pm -- less than 2 hours left before closing and while I will be glad to go home and have a bath, I had a really nice day today. Friends are so important and I realized that again today.
And did I mention I have tunes??? Yes, finally music without having to constantly hit the button. Wadadadadadoo!
